Since the children have flesh and blood, He too shared in their humanity so that by His death He might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil—and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.
“The Lord’s Day is a Christian mystery or, if one prefers, an expression of the one Christian Paschal Mystery. In the full observance of the First Day of the week, we are not only taught the doctrines of creation, redemption, and sanctification, we not only remember them, but we enter into them, or reenter them. We ourselves experience admission to a renewed creation, as a resurrected people in Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, in communion of saints, in the foretaste of heaven, as citizens of that blessed country where the river of life flows forever and God wipes away the tears from every eye.” – H.B. Porter, The Day of Light, The Biblical & Liturgical Meaning of Sunday
